Our Mission

We are on a mission to empower new and expectant parents through education and community so they can thrive as new parents!


The idea for WeeHuman began from a desire to make the journey to new parenthood easier. To have the best information and personal support available while you navigate pregnancy, birth, and new parenthood.


And then the pandemic happened. And it became even more important to have access to all that information, advice, support, and guidance, even with social distancing.


Since then, we’ve had incredible experiences connecting with parents all over the US, Canada, and beyond. We discovered that on-demand lessons and online live classes meant military parents stationed far apart could attend birth class together. That ex-pat parents could access English-language classes wherever they are in the world. That parents in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between could access the same great information and connect over their shared experiences. We’ve shared laughs, tears, and distant hugs with our students, and cheered their birth announcements. Our blended classes are perfect whether you’re seeking an unmedicated birth, epidural, homebirth, birth center, or hospital birth…or if you don’t yet know what path is right for you. We’ve got you.


We can’t wait to connect with you and come alongside you for this journey. Your life is changing. Let us help to guide you as you create the birthing and parenting experience that’s right for you.
